Paradise Enough Sterling Silver Bracelet

Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam: "Here with a loaf of bread beneath the bough, a flask of wine, a book of verse - and thou beside me singing in the wilderness - and wilderness is paradise enough."

  • 7-7/8" inner circumference

Paradise Enough

The most well known and romantic verse, Quatrain XI, from The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam is engraved in an elaborate script redolent of the middle east with a vine decoration inspired by Persian manuscript painting. Omar Khayyam [1048-1131] was a Persian mathematician, astronomer, philosopher and poet. He is most well known in the West, however, for this poetic work translated into English by Edward J. Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald's translations are broad and creative rather than literal, and it is, in some respects, an original work. No matter the author, the passion is clear.

Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in a jewelry bag will help prevent tarnishing.

The mobius is our signature shape and we were one of the first jewelers to deduce how to reproduce it via the lost wax casting method. Named after the German mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius [1790-1868], the mobius represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end or one of infinite length. As such, it became accepted as a symbol for infinity. The oval mobius bracelets fit comfortably, turning easily on the wrist, so that the wearer can be reminded of the message at a glance. The single mobius necklace moves on the chain when worn, changing its appearance continually, while the message remains constant. Our new double mobius necklace with its flowing, complex shape is an exciting addition to the collection, allowing for a longer message than the single mobius. The engraved message on these pieces repeats around the plane into infinity.
